Building works at Churchill Theatre – grey painted concrete instead of Lakeland tiles?

Thanks to Bromley Gloss at :https://www.facebook.com/BromleyGloss/photos/a.1400163736933691/2338726886410700/?type=3&theater — at High Street, Bromley.

Just to let everybody know about the plans with the lakeland slate tiles that are falling off the cladding on Churchill Theatre:

Tony Banfield, our chairman writes:

“A planning application has now been lodged by the Council for removal of the tiles on the Churchill Theatre/ Library building to survey the underlying concrete and paint over with grey paint.

Bromley Civic Society and the Town Ward Councillors are hoping this is a temporary measure and that it will not become permanent. Given the Council is proposing to strip away all the greenery in Library Gardens opposite the building, if the Churchill Quarter development goes ahead, and even if it doesn’t, BCS are calling for any new treatment to be in the form of a living ‘green wall’ such as is now being used in so many buildings these days.”
